I feel like this might be on a few peoples list's but anyway, the way Amsterdam is described in this book (and the way it looks in the film) just made me really want to go. I'm not one for travelling and I haven't been to very many places but I sure as hell want to go to Amsterdam before I kick the bucket!
Yeah, this is a bit of a strange one. But I do love the idea of visiting this place, both Susanna Kaysen and Sylvia Plath have been admitted to this hospital as well as a few other well known names. If you read my blog regularly you know how interested I am in mental illness and this would definitely have to be a place that I visit.
Book: The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit by J.R.R.Tolkein
I doubt I really needed to put what book Middle Earth is from, I doubt there are very many people that haven't heard of it. I read this series a very long time ago, when i was about 10 years old, but I do remember really loving the world, who doesn't want to live in a world with elves I mean c'mon?
I know what you're thinking, wow that's really sad. But I just adored these books when I was little! Genovia was a place that I had never heard of until these books and the place just sounds absolutely magical.
Sorry this was such a short one! But I haven't read anything like harry potter or percy jackson so this was quite a difficult one for me! Especially because most of the books I read are generally depressing and do not make me want to visit somewhere. What did you chose?
